[RC] weight and running shoes - Jonni

Who cares how much a rider weighs. Shoot, what about those who are more fit than most of us, and run along beside their horse so much of the ride. Shouldn't the horses who carry their riders the whole way get some sort of bonus? You know, like some time shaved off their over all time, to compensate for not being owned by some ultra runner? <wink>
Just tossing out a little perspective. Dang it folks, who care about a few pounds here and there. Some riders ride every inch of the trail, some riders can run many miles, giving the horse a break. A few pounds seems pretty meaningless.
